Delivery to Sheffield Home of Olympic Gold Medal Winner Ennis

Sussex Transport make regular collections and deliveries throughout the UK on a daily basis.  Last week we made a delivery of building materials to Sheffield on one of our HIAB trucks.

Sheffield is the birth place of one of our Olympian Gold winners, Jessica Ennis.  Jessica does not come from a tradionally athletic family, but they introduced her to athletics by taking her to an event at Sheffields  Don Valley Stadium during the 1996 school summer holidays. In later years she joked that her parents took her to the event because they wanted her out of the house!

She won her first athletics prize there – a pair of trainers. It was there that she met the man who was to become her coach, she took to the sport immediately and joined the City of Sheffiled Athletic Club the following year, aged eleven.

In November 2000, aged fourteen, she won the Sheffield Federation for School Sports award for the best performance by a  Sheffield athlete at the National Schools Championships, where she won the high jump competition.

The London 2012 Olympics has been a huge success for Jessica Ennis – winning a gold medal in the heptathlon!
